French-Argentine artist and designer Pablo Reinoso has been designing and fabricating sculptural benches since he was just 15. Throughout his nearly five decades as an artist he has explored several iterations of both seating and sculptural forms, including his two most recent series Spaghetti and Garabatos. Each work is a bench at its very core, but its structure has been elongated and twisted into an object that expresses a little bit of anarchy and a lot of play.
“Reinoso stages benches that, having fulfilled their role as furniture, become once again branches that can grow and climb,” explains the artist’s statement on his website. “…they can at least express themselves freely by embracing architecture, roaming through places, exploring gaps, and giving free rein to their whims.”
